This week we talk to Molly Forbes, author of the book Body Happy Kids and founder of The Body Happy Org. Molly talks to us about her experience raising children in diet culture and the work she does to educate and empower both children and adults to create body image resilience. We discuss:

  • Molly’s experience on Naked Beach TV
  • How Molly navigates her children’s exposure to media
  • What if you are a parent with your own body image issues?
  • How to handle when your child comes home and says “someone called me fat.”
  • The Body Happy Org resources and mission
